21 Businesses You Must Know

By RaeAnne Marsh

Greater Phoenix has no shortage of great, successful companies. It also remains a hot spot for entrepreneurs, and many of their startups scale up to become more of our great, successful companies.

In Business Magazine has chosen to showcase 21 businesses in our community, in different sectors and at different stages of growth. They offer candid answers to two questions that give insight into why, as Matthew Fehling, president and CEO of Better Business Bureau serving the Pacific Southwest, says in his Guest Editor letter for this issue, “sharing their success and their unique proposition would empower us all in business.”

The  questions we posed were “What is the most notable thing you or your company is doing that is making yours a company to know?” and “How is that one thing a benefit to the business community at large or to serving them as customers?”
